With a skeleton crew at our reserves and project sites, social distancing measurements in place and a lack of footfall visiting us, work continues at the Hawk and Owl Trust!

Lambing season at Sculthorpe was certainly eventful this year. The team (all two of them!) lambed 25 lambs with only one needing to be bottle-fed. 

The Peregrine occupation of the boxes at Bath and Norwich are in full swing. Many of you have been tuning into our live cameras to take a look at the scrapes. With chicks in situ, we can now sit back and watch this year's stories unfold. We’ve already had visits from previous chicks!

Other live cameras that have peaked interest are the barn owl cameras at Somerset (4 eggs) and Norfolk (none as yet). The Tawny Owl who was sitting on a single egg has failed and she has now deserted the nest.

Shapwick hides and all work on the reserve has been stopped. Other projects are continuing although at a much-reduced level.

Despite being on lockdown our efforts to conserve and encourage wildlife at the Hawk and Owl Trust must continue! We’re still taking your donations, which at this time really do keep the Hawk and Owl’ cogs turning!

If you would like to donate please visit this page where you can make a donation online.
